First off let me apologize for the crappy full coin photos I just couldn't get it to focus . Anyways I was going to write it off as just DD or MD or some other form of useless worthless doubling but a couple things like the lips threw me off. That and I know the coin is beat to heck I'm just curious.

That shelf-like doubling looks like MD to me.

But the lips are not even close to what I would consider shelf like my dad was a carpenter, I know what shelves look like LOL but there was shelf like portions in the coin also. I just wouldn't call the lip shelf like that's kind of what I'm asking here is is that considered shelf like?

Ok yes fair enough. The lips also look like MD to me, but I'm interested to see what others think too.

Looks like MD to me, and my father was an old world master cabinet builder.

An in-hand inspection of the coin would be best for us--but that's not going to happen. Given the photos, I'm seeing Machine Doubling.

When you focus on coins, you should focus on the fields, not the tops of the devices. When you focus on the fields it leaves all the devices clear. When you focus on the tops of the devices, the fields always look out of focus. So try this and see if it helps your images.

Mostly Machine Doubling on the devices. Remember when you are looking at the outside edge of the devices, that is the areas you will see Machine Doubling. The MD removes the contour of the devices, leaving them flat/squared looking. On a doubled die you will see the spread in the centers of the devices. I just check the V.V site for DDO's and guess what? There are very few DDOs during that time period:

Note the lower part of the chart. So I was going through my files and checked their site and very few are listed for several years.
